The More They Say It, The More it’s True

The LA Times is trying to shame Governor Brown for vetoing a bill that would have banned all semi-automatic rifles with a detachable magazine. Let that sink in real good. The anti-gun media and activists (which is to repeat myself) believe it’s just fine to ban just about all semi-automatic rifles. And are willing to shame politicians who don’t agree. But remember, they are just after common-sense gun laws.

Because of Brown’s veto, these especially lethal firearms are still available for purchase in California. And they’ll continue to be used by wackos in horrific shootings.

Because surely, there has never been a deadly shooting that didn’t involve semi-automatic firearms. And the media will still refuse to accept their role in making these weapons “the weapons of choice for mass killers.” The fact is that the media constantly parroting this nonsense makes it a self-fulfilling prophecy. But perhaps that helps, rather than hinders, the cause for which they agitate for.

  1. A pump shotgun was a major contributor to deaths at Columbine. In a “Gun Free Zone” a revolver, pump, or lever action firearm will be at very little disadvantage to a someone with semi-auto intent on racking up a large body count.

    There is a reason why we have phrases like, “Candy from a baby”, “Fish in barrel” and “Sitting ducks”. Being defenseless means being at the mercy of those with no mercy.

    1. The intended end point is no surprise, but the openness with which they advocate it is.

      1. That’s because they think they now have the upper hand, considering their man is in office.


  2. At what point does this tactic just wear out? It has now been over-deployed in every situation where they don’t get their way, and to many they are just whining children. How many people will begin to ignore them?

  3. On the other hand, I look forward to the next anti who again tries to use the below on me and say it’d those bad features that make them evil — or that an AWB won’t ban hunting guns.

    Assault weapon means:

    (1) A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a large capacity magazine detachable or otherwise and one or more of the following:

    (A) Only a pistol grip without a stock attached;
    (B) Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand;
    (C) A folding, telescoping or thumbhole stock;
    (D) A shroud attached to the barrel, or that partially or completely encircles the barrel, allowing the bearer to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned, but excluding a slide that encloses the barrel; or
    (E) A muzzle brake or muzzle compensator.

  4. And the media will still refuse to accept their role in making these weapons “the weapons of choice for mass killers.”

    Reminds me of the BS a few decades ago about “cop killer” bullets that could penetrate bulletproof vests, that no-one had even heard of before the news media started telling everyone how good they were at defeating body armor……
